Networking Tool For Everyone (free)

*** begin quote ***
Instead, imagine that you have completed a BUILDING MY NETWORK form in advance of the meeting. The form lists the companies you are interested in, the contact people, the issues confronting the business and the department where you want to work. This way your contact has something to react to, and to refer to later.

Any free advise is good.
I like McKay66 and I like Lucht’s structured networking meeting.
But this is a good idea to have an ice breaker of targets.
If I have a gripe with it, it would be that in might get you down in the weeds BEFORE you’ve established what “field” you should be working in. Part of the structured networking is to listen to what the target has to say about your situation.
Sometimes that is something “strategic” that you never considered.
